Free conference pass in exchange for innovative ideas

How would you like to attend Canada’s national newspaper conference for free? Now you can, thanks to a new offer from Newspapers Canada and the Ontario Community Newspapers Association.

Professional development is something that we can all benefit from, and the 2015 national conference will be delivering it in spades. Co-hosted by Newspapers Canada and OCNA, this annual industry event will be held in Toronto on Friday, May 22, and we can help you get there.

We’re inviting members and non-members, industry suppliers and industry experts, and everyone in between to share ideas and success stories with conference delegates in short-and-sweet seven-minute presentations. If your idea or story is chosen, we’ll give you a free all-access pass to the conference.

If you’re passionate about the newspaper business, we want to hear from you. You can speak on a topic of your choice as long as it highlights the central conference theme: sharing ideas that celebrate, motivate and educate the newspaper industry.

Just think, seven minutes on stage gets you access to a full day of ground-breaking presentations, hands-on educational workshops, a trade show featuring a variety of product and solution providers, and opportunities to network with your colleagues from across the country.
